Device for occluding the left atrial appendage

Application: prevention of cardio embolic stroke and other dangerous thromboembolic complica­tions in patients with atrial fibrillation.

Advantages: reliable installation in the cavity of the left atrial appendage; small risk of blood clots; high probability of complete occlusion of the left atrial appendage; low probability of residual blood flow (it helps to quickly turn off the cavity of the left atrial blood flow and thrombosis of the distal portion of the left atrial appendage, blood clots prevents migration of the left atrial appendage into the bloodstream); high flexibility and manageability of structure that helps to prevent dislocation of the occluder during implantation

Key features: allows completely restrict the cavity of the left atrial appendage from the left atrium; establishes endovascular (through the femoral vein, transseptal access without open heart surgery).

Developed: Technological Park of BNTU «Polytechnic» in collaboration with Research and Practical Center «Cardiology», Supervisors – Prof. Dr. Vladimir Minchenya, PhD., Alexander Mrochek, MD, Prof. Dr. Yury Ostrovsky, MD.
